My husband registered a domain name new copywriting

Customer Question

My husband registered a domain name for his new copywriting marketing business www.white-buffalo-marketing.com We even created a dba for our American Cherokee Company, LLC as White Buffalo Marketing We have since discovered a White Buffalo Marketing, LLC in the same state that does not have a website nor any photos of their logo, etc. We had created a website (ready to go online), logo and tagline before we discovered the White Buffalo Marketing LLC. Can we go ahead legally and STILL use it?

Hello, my name is Kendell! Happy to help! Please remember that this is a tool for information only, we cannot give you legal advice and thus cannot tell you what to do or not (since that is prohibited).This should not be considered a attorney-client relationship. Also, please reserve your feedback until we have fully answered your question -- I will stick with you until we do.

Did you happen to have checked the USPTO for trademark registrations? That (or potentially state trade name elections) are bigger issues in actuality than domains.
